About New Plant Protein start up
I am an experienced vegan chef (10+ years), caterer and food manufacturer, currently unemployed due to lockdown and enrolled on a business course. I want to launch my business in spring 2021, making tofu, tempeh and vegan meats, to sell to takeaways, wholesalers and shops, and possibly also directly to the public, online. I've been vegan for 28 years. My strengths are in food knowledge, recipe development, and connections within the vegan movement and caterers. My weakness is social media engagement, packaging design, and marketing.
I'm based in Derbyshire and happy to relocate once the business is up and running. I anticipate renting a food-grade kitchen, to start with. Locations I'd consider are North West, North East and central England, or southern Scotland.
